Cool Hijabi Stories for the Month

•March 17, 2014 12:42:21 PM PDT

Two cool stories about hijabi women we want to share for the month!

 

Samah Aidah, a varsity football player for Overland High School in Denver, Colorado was not allowed to play because of her hijab. The next day, her teammates showed up to the field all wearing hijabs to show their support.   This is what team spirit is all about.

Secondly, congratulations to Kadra Mohamed, the first Somali-American woman to join the St. Paul Police Department, a move made possible by the option for employees to wear a police-issued hijab. St. Pauls is one of two Police departments in the U.S. which allow hijab.
